Let's Talk Trash
We’ve made it our goal to prevent as much trash as possible from going into landfills. That’s why our bucket and wood products are all made with repurposed materials, saving them from the dismal destination that is a landfill, and giving them new life.
Why Landfills are NOT the Answer
Think about it, you wouldn’t want pockets of garbage covering your face, so why are we indifferent about doing exactly that to the earth? Landfills are creating a slew of issues for this beautiful planet as enormous mounds of waste build up across the earth, leading to disruptions within the natural cycle, destroying millions of acres with garbage. To make matters worse, about 2/3rds of material that ends up in landfills is biodegradable. As a result, greenhouse gasses such as methane and carbon dioxide are released back into the atmosphere where they amplify climate change as leachate (the liquid formed from waste breaking down) can slowly contaminate the land and nearby water sources. In fact, studies show that living near a landfill has adverse health effects for residents. It’s true that landfill technology has improved over time, but as far as this planet goes, landfills remain to be the least ideal place for waste to end up. That’s why it’s so important that we all do our part to limit the amount of trash that meets this fate.
